This the white on the move. Can they make a draw? If you can not solve this problem, I will give the answer after 3 days. Good luck!

Hey Georgi, you have really nice endgame puzzles there. I would never have thought of the solution. I can\'t wait for the next puzzle. :)-

Sorry, I missed the top one, #67, 70-76. Lol, Black can\'t move. Nice key move: rook \'sac\', only way to avoid stalemate, forces Black to capture and set his own trap.

# 77 The white king - black queen matrix is famous. White\'s king can\'t move, so his rook can chase the black king around in perpetual check on b1, b2, b3. If the king captures the rook Kxb3, it\'s stalemate. If the black king goes to the fourth rank, his queen is pinned. ... Does anyone know of any games where White escapes in this way?

87Philippines  LayZ StyleChessHere Silver Member2014-03-05 16:50:21
I can only see stalemates with the Black King going from g1 & h1 in both puzzles. The White King has no time to go near the Black pawn. I guess I have a lot to study on the endgames. :(-

88England  cc1422628553ChessHere Moderator2014-03-06 02:17:54
Both puzzles,
1.Qa8+ Kg1
2.Qa2
Easy wins for white.
-

89Cyprus  kali-mera2014-03-06 06:34:17
In the two items after: 1.Qa8+ Kg1 2.Qa2 h1=Q and this is a draw.-

90Canada  cc14226285672014-03-06 06:51:20
I think you have to start with
1.Qc8 kg1
2.Qg4+Kf1

2...Kh1 it is only a draw (or stalemate). But in the game (2) the white will win! How?

5.Qd2+Kg1
6.Kf4 h1=Q
7Kg3 and mate next move

The poor grand master Kamsky, to the last time he thought that this is a draw!

An easier task:
White to move and mate in 3 moves.

White to move, mate only in 2 moves.
My friends do you like this position of endgames? Are those things really useful to you or do you find them boring? Do you want I to continue with them?
-

101Philippines  LayZ StyleChessHere Silver Member2014-03-09 15:34:54
Your endgames puzzles are very good. Please continue. My best bet for the solution is 1.Qf6

If 1...Qxf6 2.Rg1#
If 1...Qxg8 2.Qa1#
If 1...Bxg8 2.Bd3#
If 1...Bc2 2.Rb8#
Any other move, it\'s either Rook delivering mate at b8 or g1.
-

102England  cc1422628553ChessHere Moderator2014-03-11 11:31:37
Yes but...
1Qf6 Bc2
2Rb8+ Bb3

so 2Ra1#
-

103Philippines  LayZ StyleChessHere Silver Member2014-03-11 15:40:38
Okay. I\'ve missed the 1...Bc2 move but the result is a checkmate in the second move anyway. Thanks. :)-
